We know all of you are 100% focused on the Detroit Lions upcoming matchup against the Buffalo Bills but we figured we would give you a little break.
Jesse Alkire, who is a copywriter/designer/comedian/troublemaker in Chicago, has created a “City Edition” jersey for each and every NFL team and they are absolutely amazing!
Nike’s popular NBA City Edition uniforms sought to bring fans closer to their home teams by pulling inspiration from local architecture, landmarks, famous figures, and more to create new looks for each city that the fans can rally behind. Since Nike also has the NFL uniform contract, I decided to get a jump on this before they do and see what NFL teams would look like with their own unique and creative City Edition jerseys.
Here is what Alkire came up with for the Lions. As you can see, the jersey is amazing!

Breaking down the Detroit Lions playoff chances and why they WILL get in
Ok, I know this is a BOLD prediction but I believe the Detroit Lions will somehow, someway squeeze their way into the NFL Playoffs.
With their win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, the Lions moved to 5-8 and kept their slim playoff hopes alive.
In fact, following the Minnesota Vikings loss the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, those hopes actually improved as the Lions playoff chances, according to FiveThirtyEight, went from 1% to 3%!
You are probably thinking one of two things right now. 1) This guy is a complete clown if he believes the Lions are going to make the playoffs, I am not reading any more of his BS or 2) I may as well see what this clown has to say since he took the time to write it out.
Well, my hope is that you are still reading because I am about to tell you exactly why I believe the Lions WILL make the NFL Playoffs.
Lions chances…in a vacuum
Believe it or not, the Lions could find themselves in the playoffs even if they lose one of their remaining three games but the chances of that are VERY SLIM. So, my focus in this piece will be predicated on them winning out and letting the chips fall where they may.
First, let’s look at how the Lions playoff chances increase (in a vacuum) with them winning each of their remaining three games.
*Note: This does not take into account what other teams in the league do, we will look at that later. Also, I am not going to get into tie games because all of our heads would explode.
